Default Batman Forever Batwing EDF Challange

Has anyone out there built or thought of building the Batman Forever Batwing? I recently found a good 3 view of it. Althought I believe the wings should be tapered without the large bumps shown so that they are flatter. This is shown in the toy picture below. If anyone needs better pictures I have the toy and can take any angle needed. I would love to see an EDF of this fantastic aircraft.

I built an 80 inch version of the batwing-from keetons first movieI can tell you that those foreward swept wings will throw your cg too far forward pith stability will be hard to fix-search batwing in jets

I have built the original Batwing in an 80 inch version turbine powered and I can tell you that the version you are thinking about building would suffer from the instability of the forward swept wingsCG location would be nutz! Here's a pic of mine

Do you have any video of your batwing flying? Chris Allen has a batwing similar to the one I'm planning on building called the bat from hell. He has flight videos on youtube. I also love the dragon you built! Awesome job!
